Anyone entering our studio space must have their temperature checked. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or over will not be allowed in.
Masks must be worn at all times.
Equipment will be wiped down between classes.
Students will be assigned spots at the barre and taped out squares in the center so they can be six feet away from other dancers at all times.
If the studio is forced to shut down due to COVID and the Illinois guidelines, all of our classes will go virtual. There will be no refunds.
Extreme Weather or Unexpected Interruptions: If classes are canceled, you will be allowed to make them up. Cancellations due to inclement weather will be posted on the website homepage. You will also receive an email regarding any cancellations.
We reserve the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regular teacher is ill, injured or otherwise unable to teach.
Food and Beverages
Food and beverages are not permitted in the dance studios or the dressing rooms. Water bottles are permitted in class. Food and beverage must remain in the lobby or in areas designated for eating. We have a NO gum policy.
Regular attendance is necessary in order to make progress in class. Dancers who miss more than 3 meetings of a specific class during the Winter/Spring Term may not be permitted to perform in that dance in the June Recital. Participation will be at the teacher and Artistic Director’s discretion. Private lessons may be required in order to catch up. Classes missed during the student’s Spring Break will be excused absences. Attendance at the Studio Run Thru and Theatre Dress Rehearsal is also required of all recital participants.
Students who arrive more than 15 minutes after class has begun may be asked to sit on the side and not participate. This is due to the possibility of injury without proper warm-up. Teacher discretion will be used.
Payment for June recital costumes will be added onto the Winter/Spring tuition.
We reserve the right to cancel or move a class if there are less than 5 students registered.
Parents are invited to visit the classes twice throughout the year during assigned visitation weeks. Only two visitors are permitted for each dancer.
Class Absences and Make-ups:
If you are going to be absent, please email the studio so we can notify the teacher. Dancers have the option to make up a class by attending a class of the same genre and level, same genre and lower level, or at the entry level of a genre they haven’t tried before. Classes must be made up within one month of being missed. Please email the studio to arrange a time for a make-up lesson.
Dancers with injuries preventing them from participating in class are encouraged to come watch their classes. There is a lot of learning that can happen through observation.
Withdrawing from a Class
A withdrawal form must be received to drop a class. Withdrawals are only accepted until before the 3rd meeting of a class, or with a signed letter of medical necessity. If a student drops after attending 1-2 classes, the price per class attended will be deducted from the refund. After the 3rd class the only way to get a refund is with a medical letter of necessity. The price per class attended up until this point will be deducted from the refund.
